Can't do that now. Contracts signed and no doubt billions of baht transferred to overseas accounts.

That's right Thai's never sell anything once they buy them unless they can get more money after say 5 years.

This will hit the coffers a bit. Still they have another 180 days to try to wriggle out of it.

I'm sure they will try, the contract was cancelled 20 years ago... still no settlement.

The SRT broke the conditions of the contract. I have been watching this for a long time.

It is time to I pay up & move on (with a bit more wisdom & a bit less greed),

but I doubt they have the nouse to understand commercial law

Cases like this, Hopewell, Blue Diamond Affair, Walter Tau, Carlsberg, Pepsi etc. should be lessons to anyone stupid enough to think investing buckets of money here is a good idea.

The annoyance for the Ministry of Transport of having to pay this sum is that the traditional 35% Rule states that 35% of the National Budget gets stolen in corruption. 35% of 25 billion Baht is 8.75 billion Baht. The court is depriving the relevant politicians and officials of this treasure chest. No wonder they are fighting the court's decision.

And wriggle like hell they most assuredly will.

 

But this is another (if relatively non-consequenttial on its own) brick in the wall. The signs are there to be read.

Good luck getting anything out of these greedy parasites. 

And I am quite sure they will  deny any suggestion that no country in the world trusts them, and be genuinely puzzled that anyone would say such a thing. Stupid foreigners eh? Clueless.

 

Thais rule the world, and have the only worthwhile language in the world (that the Thai government itself says that 65% of Thais cannot speak properly).

 

I feel all privileged and stuff to live in the third world.

Jesus wept. Please don't remind me of the lunacy. I already feel like I'm surrounded by a funny farm...

Hey Parker. The only way I cling to the scant threads of sanity I have is to remind myself that I can still recognize outright lunacy when I see it. 

Please don't ask me to abandon that solice. But I probably should keep it to myself.

I'm sure it will still go ahead. I bet it's booked to launch at the Yasothon rocket festival.
